“It’s almost Purim, a holiday of masquerade revolving around a story of seduction, political intrigue and debauchery, commanding celebrants to get so drunk that they don’t know the good guys from the bad.”

“Intro: “Saint Valentine” was a farce…it all began with a she-wolf.
In a world of fake news and “alternative facts,” it’s no surprise that we’ve been sold a Valentine’s Day fallacy, too.
The high holiday of love is a capitalist’s fairy tale, concocted by Hallmark’s 19th century forebearers to increase greeting card sales.‘”

With my faith in humankind shattered into so much confetti on both sides of the aisle, all sides of the perma-wars and deep inside “the stacks” of my fake-news-battered hippocampus, I look toward humanity’s kissing cousins, the “make-love-not–war,” female-empowered bonobos for inspiration to lift off and take on 2017….

“I Gotta Have That Kink”: Mark Will on “The Kinkster” inspired by Dr. Susan Block’s The Bonobo Way | Hollywood Progressive
Well, I believe there is, and I also think that those who are more sexually indulgent are less likely to participate in violence. I have long been interested in the theories of sex therapist Dr. Susan Block, who argues very convincingly that the reason our simian relatives the bonobos are so much better at conflict resolution than we humans are is because they are basically hedonists who have lots of sex. Unlike other apes, who can be quite aggressive amongst themselves, the oversexed bonobos never kill one another. They make love, not war. Dr. Block urges us all to follow “The Bonobo Way” of peace through pleasure. I am a strong supporter of her #GoBonobos campaign online, and “The Kinkster” definitely reflects some of her ideas.” Mark Will of [ai] on Dr. Block’s influence on the song “The Kinkster.”

Susan M. Block, Ph.D., a.k.a. “Dr. Suzy,” world-renowned sexologist and leading champion of sex education, erotic freedom and the highly endangered bonobo apes, is perhaps best-known for her groundbreaking specials on HBO. Host of the famous—and slightly infamous—Dr. Susan Block Show, broadcasting on radio, cable TV and the Internet for over 30 years, Dr. Block is a magna cum laude graduate of Yale University with a Ph.D. in sexology from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, and a co-founder of Sex Week at Yale, inspiring similar college-student-based sex education conferences around the world. A best-selling, award-winning author, Dr. Block’s latest book, The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure, has been acclaimed for its paradigm-shifting vision, humor and sound advice by journalists, sexperts, statesmen, primatologists and porn stars.
Director of the Dr. Susan Block Institute for the Erotic Arts & Sciences, she is a top contributor to the Wiley-Blackwell International Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality, authoring “extended explorations” on “Sexual Fetishes,” “Phone Sex” and “Striptease,” as well as definitive articles on “Spanking” and “Cuckolding.” Recently, she wrote the foreword to the award-winning Ecosexuality collection, and her writings on sex, politics and culture have been published in a variety of publications from Counterpunch to Cosmo to her own Journal. But she’ll never quit her “day job” as a therapist in private practice, helping thousands of individuals, couples and groups, from California to Saudi Arabia, to explore, understand, discipline, enhance, share and enjoy their sexuality.
